Essential Galveston Island Frequencies.

Most ham radio operators on Galveston Island have a long list of frequencies programmed into their radios. We do have some available repeaters that aren’t well documented and others that aren’t available anymore.  I put together a list of available frequencies that should be useful here on Galveston Island. I’ve had visitors ask what repeaters are available on the Island

This is a list of frequencies that not only are useful for normal communications but in an emergency situation.  Most residents on the Island have a much longer list, but I have excluded most repeaters that aren’t within the county, or particularly strong.  Two exceptions are the listed Fusion repeaters, One is in Friendswood, and the other in Baytown. These should be able to be reached with a full-powered mobile. I have not included any DMR or DSTAR repeaters, simply because I don’t have a radio that works with them. I will be happy to make those additions if you let me know as well as any other repeaters and frequencies that should be added. Please let me know of any suggested additions, deletions or modifications,

This link of Essential Freqencies will be a  printable PDF that may be useful.
